Mary McAleese

31 10 2011

Ballycastle SDLP have paid tribute to Mary McAleese in her final days as Irish President. Speaking shortly after the election victory of her successor Labour’s Michael D Higgins, Councillor Dónal Cunningham said:
“Mary McAleese has served as Irish President with distinction, compassion and impact. She has more than fulfilled her promise to build bridges. She and her husband Martin (both proud of their County Antrim roots) have helped to build and improve relationships between North and South, and between the different traditions on this island and between Britain and Ireland.
“President McAleese has been a constant source of encouragement for all in the nation. She has encouraged, enterprise, reconciliation, inclusion, culture, community, child and family support, learning, innovation, partnership, environmental responsibility and international solidarity.
“In all her visits to Moyle, both Mary and Martin have impressed and motivated people. In their various invitations and receptions of Moyle people at Áras an Uachtaráin they have also recognised the work and worth of many individuals and groups here.
